Our students have a variety of reasons for wanting to learn Chinese: to improve employment opportunities, for travel purposes, or purely for the pleasure of learning the beautiful script. Whatever your reason for wanting to study Chinese, it is, of course, very important that you choose the best location and course for you.
There are a number of factors involved in choosing the right location, course, and accommodation. We understand this, and this is why we make every effort to visit our partner schools regularly, so that you are able to speak to someone with first-hand experience. If you are interested in taking a Chinese course, why not call us and ask to speak to Phillippa, who has visited our schools in Beijing and Shanghai? Phillippa really enjoyed her time at our schools in China, and would love to discuss them with you.
Spoken by one-fifth of the world's population, Chinese is fast becoming one of the world's top international languages. If you choose to learn Chinese on one of our Mandarin Chinese language courses, you'll be studying one of six official languages of the UN, spoken from Republic of China to Taiwan, Singapore and beyond. Although most speakers of Chinese speak one of several varieties of the language, Mandarin Chinese is the common language of communication in the media, education and administration across Asia.
You can choose to learn to speak Chinese at one of our Chinese language schools in Beijing (capital city of China), Shanghai (China’s largest city), or the beautiful coastal resort of Qingdao. We also have a Chinese language school in Xi'an, close to the magnificent Terracotta Army!
We offer a wide range of Chinese language courses, from our popular ‘Intensive’ (20 group lessons per week), ‘Super-Intensive’ (25+ group lessons per week) and Private Lessons, to our special interest courses such as ‘Chinese and Work Experience’, ‘Chinese and Tai Chi’ and ‘Chinese and Art’. Whichever location and course you choose, you will be taught by native Chinese speakers, with both a university degree and a qualification in teaching Chinese as a foreign language to students of all levels, from complete beginner to advanced! If you have any questions regarding our Chinese language courses, please do contact us.
